 State security forces abducted, activist Abdullah al-Saadawi, from the Imbaba district in Cairo while he was collecting signatures during door knocking in support of the chartered seven demands for reform.

 

A police officer from the Imbaba precinct seized Saadawi confiscating the petition with citizens’ signatures. He was transferred to the police station and later to an unknown destination where his whereabouts still remains unknown.

 

The charter which has so far secured over 750, 000 signatures calls for:

 

1. Ending the state of emergency.

2. The empowerment of the Egyptian judiciary to supervise the full electoral process as a whole.

3. Control of the elections by local civil society organizations and international levels.

4. Providing equal opportunities in the media for all candidates, especially in the presidential election.

5. Enabling Egyptians abroad to exercise their right to vote in embassies and consulates in Egypt.

6. Ensuring the right to stand in presidential elections without arbitrary restrictions in line with Egypt's obligations under the International Convention for Civil and Political Rights, and limiting the right to run for the presidency to two terms.

7. Elections by individual identification social numbers
